Careers events with alumni volunteers

It's been a packed month which started on 1st October when four Politics and IR alumni visited and spoke to around fifty Politics and IR students at our speed networking event.  Careers in government, NGOs and risk analysis were discussed. We held our very first law speed networking event on the 9th October with twelve local law firms.  On 14th October our regular 'Is teaching for Me?' event chaired by Anita Wood saw three alumni give a fantastic overview of of the teaching profession and the opportunities for routes in to teaching. The 17th October was our busiest day with alumnus Dennis Sharpe, retired barrister from Field Court chambers giving four mock pupillage interviews. We also welcomed back Craig Browne, Arabic and Middle East studies, 2013, who did a full day of talks for students with Dorra Agrebi from the UN Mine Action Service in Iraq, on working for the UN and Humanitarian work including those on the MSc Global Governance and MA Conflict, Security and Development. Craig currently is a policy adviser for the World Food programme. On 18th October the employability and alumni teams delivered our first alumni networking event for law students at the Penryn campus. Finally, on 28th October our 'Careers in Social Justice' event took place, which was designed to give students in sociology, anthropology and criminology a taste of the opportunities working for the police, in rehabilitation of youth offenders and on government policy.
